Let's start off with one of my most favourite cupcake towers I have done to date. This was a very special project and made for some good friends of mine. They just recently had a gorgeous baby girl and to celebrate her one month birthday they asked me to create them a cupcake tower. You may be thinking ... "One month birthday?" In Chinese culture, the one month birthday is a very important milestone and is usually celebrated with family and friends.
My friends only request was to have a piglet theme and the rest of the design was left up to me. Yay!! Artist freedom to do what ever I wanted!! There were so many ideas running through my head! I settled on something sweet and girly that had a vintage feel.
I have been dying to try my hand at fondant ruffles and have never had the opportunity and seeing I had artist license ... this was the perfect cake to have a go. I absolutely love the how the ruffles turned out! They did take forever but I think it was well worth the time and effort.
Another thing I was quite proud of was how all my little piglets turned out! I've made Piglet a few times but have never been happy with how he looked. I surprised myself this time and just loved them all!

It was such an honor to create this tower for Baby Ashton Sky and her parents. We all had a wonderful time celebrate her one month birthday.
Congratulations Kim and Ben!! Ashton Sky is a gorgeous wee thing and she is very lucky to have such lovely and caring people as her mummy and daddy!
